Join us at this fundraiser for The Friends of the Somerville Public Library: Our guest speaker Rohan Anderson will talk about sustainable eating, while demonstrating how to use homegrown food and gathered plants in cookery to suit all ages. Nettle pesto? I hope so! He will discuss recipes from his book Whole Larder Love, and maybe preview some new ones...
The event will take place on Monday June 17 (Bunker Hill Day) at the Fringe studio, 9 Olive Square, Somerville MA; map, from 7-9pm. Social hour beforehand from 6pm. There is parking on nearby Washington Street or Somerville Ave.
What does this have to do with libraries, you might ask? Beyond creating an educational and enjoyable evening... this is a chance to meet board members and other volunteers of the Friends all the while raising money to continue community-building programming at our three library branches.
About the Friends of the Somerville Public Library
The Friends of the Somerville Public Library is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization that helps the library and its branches to provide programs, services and materials not covered by the library's normal operating budget. It is 100% staffed by volunteers and tickets purchased are tax-deductible.
Funds raised go towards supporting the popular Museum Passes program, license fees for movie screenings, co-sponsor Somerville Reads and more, so the library can offer a variety of children's, young adult, and adult programs which range from puppet shows to poetry readings.
If you cannot make the talk, and would still like to contribute you may visit our donation page via the Somerville Public Library. Any questions, please do not hesitate; email@example.com.
Raised on a small farm in rural Australia, Anderson developed not only an affinity for nature, but also an understanding and appreciation of the role nature plays in providing sustenance.
He now grows, hunts, fishes and forages in wild and urban surrounds to feed his family. He also documents his adventures through photography, sharing his recipes, slow food philosophies and sometimes contentious views on his hugely popular blog Whole Larder Love. Describing himself not as a chef, but rather a family cook, Anderson is influenced by rustic, peasant-style cooking, with minimal fuss involved. Grow, gather, hunt, cook...
This evening is made possible thanks to the generous support of Barbour, who will be onsite to showcase their rugged goods. Thanks also to Rohan Anderson, Fringe, Christine Mitchell, Repeat Press, Island Creek Oysters, Flatbread Pizza Co., and Spindrift Soda.
